Joe Simpson has faced the music.
The 54-year-old father of Jessica and Ashlee Simpson pleaded not guilty to two DUI charges following an August arrest, and earlier this week he was sentenced to 36 months' probation, fined $390 plus penalties and ordered to complete a three-month alcohol education program, E! News reports.
"Joe's arrest shocked his family," a source told Us Weekly following the Simpson family patriarch's August 4 arrest in Sherman Oaks, Calif. "Any time he's in the news, it directly reflects upon Jessica and Ashlee."
